*as Indomie, DSTV join Nickelodeon as associate sponsors
Top Nigerian singers including Mayorkun, Falz, Simi and Adekunle Gold are among the music artists expected to perform at the second edition of NickFest billed for September 29 – 30 in Lagos.
The event, which is scheduled to hold at the Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island, is being hosted by Nickelodeon in partnership with Maltina.
According to a statement from the organisers, parents can treat their families to a two-day extravaganza at the orange entertainment filled wonderland.
“In addition to Maltina’s Happyland, this year, the entertainment packed event welcomes associate sponsors Indomie and DStv Nigeria who will be joining in on the fun by creating additional experience zones.
“TV personality, Ikponmwosa “IK” Osakioduwa returns as a host, joined by Nigeria’s Got Talent maiden edition winner, Amarachi as a co-host.
“Tickets are available at Afritickets for N5,000 each day for adults and children three-years and above, while kids under the age of two have free access to the Federal Palace on Saturday, 29 September and Sunday, 30 September.
“Families can anticipate performances by Nickelodeon’s superstar characters: SpongeBob Square Pants; Adventure Bay’s intrepid pups, Skye, Rubble Marshall and Chase from Paw Patrol; the energetic Dora the Explorer with her animal rescuer cousin, Diego and her best pal, Boots.
“The genies who can solve any problem, Shimmer and Shine, are also part of the amazing character lineup and there will be surprise performances by some of Africa’s adored entertainers.
“Kids and parents can look forward to lots of singing, dancing and pure laugh-out-loud wholesome fun as they are whisked away to their favourite Nickelodeon characters’ worlds,” the statement reads.
It added that the Celebrity Slime Challenge will be the highlight of NickFest as popular personalities are slimed green in an effort to raise both awareness and funds for children support through NGO projects in Nigeria.
It will be recalled that some of Nigeria’s top entertainers such as Mr. P (Paul of P-Square), Chioma Akpotha, Ill Bliss, Mr. Eazi, Samantha Walsh and Ehiz were featured in last year’s festival. They also got slimed several times in order to raise awareness and funds for the indigent Children’s Trust project.
“Apart from creating an opportunity for attendees to give to a good cause, NickFest serves as an avenue for children to have fun with their favourite Nickelodeon characters and for adults to let loose and relive their childhood,” it noted.
